A First Class Thriller! - The Kindle Book Review
A Cherokee curse and a hunger for success wreak havoc in this ambitious supernatural tale. The bright spots of true suspense will satisfy readers looking for a grim, inventive thriller. - Kirkus Reviews
You will enjoy every minute that you’re reading this book—the characters, the settings, the battles between man and nature, and, of course, that magical realism. With all these elements, this still is a thriller, a real page-turner. Moreover, it’s a very original piece of literature that will leave you thinking…and wondering. - Bookpleasures.com Review
Set in the mountains of Georgia, Poisoned Soil is a harrowing, cinematic story of greed and retribution that follows Blake Savage, a ruined football star who risks everything for a chance to make his fortune. When an egocentric restaurateur offers Blake fame and fortune to produce an illegal delicacy for his exclusive network of secret supper clubs, Blake enters a gilded world. But when the foodies take their first bites of the illicit delicacy an ancient disease resurfaces, unleashing a trail of black death.
A shockingly real drama about how greed entices otherwise good people to make bad decisions, Poisoned Soil appeals to adult readers who enjoy realistic thrillers in the style of Stephen King. For readers who like Barbara Kingsolver's agrarian prose and Garcia Marquez's magical realism, Poisoned Soil weaves a rich Appalachian tapestry and brings the natural world to life through the eyes of a remarkable family held captive on cursed Cherokee land. A very relevant story in this day and age of TEOTWAWKI.
